Sapa’s cable car named among new tourist attractions to visit in 2015


The UK travel publisher, Rough Guides, has listed Vietnam’s Sapa cable car among 9 New Tourist Attractions to Visit in 2015.
According to Rough Guides, the cable car system in Sapa will be the world’s longest and highest cable car, running up from sleepy Sapa Town in Lao Cai Province to the peak of 3,143-meter Fansipan Mountain, known as Indochina’s rooftop.
 
Reaching Mount Fansipan used to mean a full-day hike at least. But from later this September the trek up will be reduced to a 20-minute flight by cable car.
“Enjoy the view from the summit before exploring Sapa itself, an isolated community set to become firmly established on the tourist trail – the cable car will transport 2,000 people per hour, the same number as reached the peak in an entire year previously,” it wrote.
 
Work on the Sapa cable car started in November 2013. The aerial tramway will be followed by the construction of hotels and recreational facilities in the northern highlands.
The tramway will be the first of its kind in Asia, and the world's longest and highest at 6,200 meters long and 3,000 meters high, as stated by Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai at the launch of the project.
 
But environmentalists, smart travel companies and tourism experts have been rallying against it as they said it will ruin the natural beauty of the area and the challenge of conquering Indochina's peak on foot. Custmers can contact Climb Fansipan Team for best arrangement at: climbfansipan.com
